Review: Nursing Cover

5441a4a97c1c288ade89e2b91cea0370d26d53cb I was sent this beautiful nursing cover to review. As a mother who breastfed I can tell you this would have been amazing to have when I was nursing. Aside from having a super cute pattern and being stylish, the functionality of this product is awesome. The creators of this nursing cover was spot on!

I Love that there is built in “boning around the neckline so that its hands free viewing of your baby. The Fabric is soft and wide so you can have your privacy while nursing. My Favorite feature of this cover is the adjustable neck strap with D ring. this way you can make sure that it fits perfectly every time. The neck strap is wide so its not digging into your neck. It also comes with its own storage pouch so that you can throw it in your purse and take it with you anywhere you go.

The Cover sells for $14.99 on amazon and would make an amazing gift for the expecting mother that you may know.

review: www.Sammydress.com

UntitledGood customer service and affordable products mean a bunch to me and I recently found a company that has both of those qualities and I wanted to share.

I stumbbled across SammyDress.com as an advertisement on my facebook page and decided to try it out. I placed an order for the following:

1435100965139-P-2766753

Stylish Scoop Neck 3/4 Sleeve Printed Dress For Women $8.99

I am totally in love with dress except I had to hem it myself about 5 inches. It was SUPER long, however I was perfectly okay with that since I only paid $8.99 for the dress, and the colors are beautiful. While I was at Panara I had a random lady come up and tell me how beautiful my dress looked and she said that she hoped I got lots of compliments on it. She made my day and this dress has quickly become one of my favorites. I am in love with it. I got an XL and it fits true to size, I could have got away with a large.

1433097249973-P-2686459

Ethnic Sleeveless Round Neck Printed Dress For Women $8.80

So first I will say that I had no intentions of wearing this as a dress when I ordered it, I’m just to curvy for that, however I did want to wear it with a pair of jeans. This “dress” fits more like a shirt, I got an XL and it is tight on my boobs however as I lose weight it will fit better. The dress itself is beautiful and I love it! I cant wait to grow into it better as I believe this will be a staple of my regular line up next summer!

1431649414179-P-2544005

Sexy Solid Color High-Waisted Fringe Design Plus Size Bikini Set For Women $6.49

Woooah what? $6.49 for the top AND the bottoms of a swimsuit? It must be a urban legend. Cant be real can it? Oooh it is! And the swim suit is amazing. The bottoms are not as long as I would have liked, there is more skin showing than the picture above but I purchased an XL and the top and the bottoms fit great. I really love this swim suit. The quality is great and the price is perfect.

1395096069928-P-1553804

Stylish Women’s Scoop Neck Batwing Sleeve Printed Loose-Fitting Chiffon Blouse $7.78

And last but not least my new favorite shirt! For $7.78 I feel like I practically stole this shirt! it doesnt fit me off the shoulder like this, however that may be because it is a one size fits all, but the quality and the colors are right on. I love the bright prettyness of this shirt (yes prettyness is Now a thing) and I love how it looks with jeans. This shirt has totally rocked my world.

I’m in love… go check out SammyDress

Dream Essentials Contoured Sweet Dreams Sleep Mask


159_3I was sent this ultra light weight breathable sleep mask through Tomoson to review.

Some features of the mask are:

  • Very light and breathable, hardly noticeable for falling asleep comfortably
  • Flexible and robust, take it anywhere easily!
  • Little pressure to the eyes

This slim-line and stylish eye mask called the Sweet Dreams is a contoured shape sleep mask that offers full comfort and excellent light blocking without any pressure to the eyes. You will hardly notice this sleep mask on your face while falling asleep.

The Sweet Dreams Sleep Mask is very flexible and robust, it will conveniently fold up into a complimentary drawstring carry pouch and can be tossed into the bottom of a beach bag, purse, or briefcase for easy storage and will not lose its shape. Great value for its small price.

Included with each Eye Mask is a pair of soft foam ear plugs, molded with state-of-the art, super low-pressure foam, and a neat little Carry Pouch to keep your eye mask clean – both come free when you order this product.

I personally Love this mast for when I have migraines. It does a wonderful job at blacking everything out without adding to much pressure around my head with the strap. I Love that it comes in  a little bag to keep in safe and clean and I always know where to find it when my head is throbbing.
You can find it here where it sells for $9.95

Black Skull Cap Beanie Review + Giveaway


wpid-b612-2015-02-07-10-41-55.jpgI was sent this super cute Black Skull Cap Beanie to do a review on. You can find it here on Amazon. It costs $13.95. Its a fun, cute and even sexy way to deal with this harsh winter Or as the amazon description states: “Our Beanies are made for people who like to push their fun to the limit, look death in the face and come back grinning” I was wondering why I was suddenly feeling reckless and like I needed to go speeding down the highway or something insane 

815DxXnFRdL._SL1500_

Its a unisex hat I’m beyond disappointed that it didn’t come with the man in the hat… that scruffy delicious beanie wearing dude… yum.. Anywho.. I dig it. I like it. Its warm and well made and the description also claims, “It’ll kick the first snowflake’s ass so hard that the rest will be too scared to even land.”  Essentially its like wearing Chuck Norris on your head.giveaway-banner

Stark Safe Cut Resistant Gloves Review

wpid-20150111_004528.jpgI was sent a pair of Stark Safe cut resistant gloves through Tomoson to review.

So the very nature of being a Heather is to be clumsy and no memory… and if you are a friend of a Heather you know that is a 100% factual statement. So any product that is going to keep me from potentially cutting my hand up (or off) is a welcomed product in my home.

This pair of Cut resistant gloves sells on Amazon for  $11.99.

Now keep in mind keyword is resistant, not proof so you still have potential of chopping your hand in half 🙂

So wondering why you would need a pair of cut resistant gloves? If you would have asked me last weekend when I was peeling potatoes and peeled my knuckle along with the potato I would have screamed at you exactly why I needed these gloves.

That Stark Safe Cut Resistant Gloves are

  • 4 times stronger than leather
  • Lightweight and breathable as well as comfortable.
  • Food service safe has a antibacterial blend.
